Michail D. Chrysos, McGill University

In 1995, I received my BA in Ancient and Modern Greek Literature from the Department of Greek Philology of the University of Athens. In September 1998, after two years of teaching experience in a Preparatory Secondary School in Greece, I was accepted for the degree of Master in Education in Curriculum and Instruction in the Faculty of Education at McGill University. My main academic interests lie in the area of contemporary issues of curriculum development and improvement, qualitative research methods in education, and the relationship between literacy and learning.
